Today is a special day...it's my mom's birthday! I thought I would surprise her with a special birthday message from one of her idols, Pee-Wee Herman! My mom was an official member of the Pee-Wee Fan Club in the 80's and has an impressive display of memorabilia dedicated to him (pretty awesome, if you ask me), which includes the VHS & DVD collections of every episode, a talking Pee-Wee doll, an autographed photo, a children's book, and a Pee-Wee-themed belt and t-shirt. As you can imagine, I've seen each episode multiple times (I loved Pee-Wee's Playhouse when I was a kid) as well as Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. My mom and I really wanted to see Pee-Wee's Broadway show, but unfortunately found out about it too late and did not make it...hopefully they will go on tour again someday. This past spring, my mom was sad to learn that Pee-Wee was in Austin for SXSW at the same time she was visiting to view her submission to The Sketchbook Project Tour. So here is the talk you missed, mom!
And if you don't already know, my mom is pretty awesome. To get a better idea, read my 100th blog post dedicated to her by clicking
Finally, today's secret word is: SUZ! If anyone says the secret word, SCREAM REAL LOUD!
LOVE YOU, MOM!
